Database Shutdown & Restart
|Previous Index Next How To Use|
Maintaining a database can involve shutting a database down. This makes the database unavailable for users, except the database owner or SYSDBA.
To make the database available to everyone, you need to restart it.
To access this functionality, use Administration & Maintenance | Database Shutdown from the context menu, or use the Shutdown Database node in the Database Navigator.
This functionality only works with Firebird SuperServer.
Shutting down a database
Database Shutdown dialog
Check the Firebird documentation for a detailed description on these options.

After the timeout has expired, Database Workbench will show you the result of the shutdown attempt. Do take in account that this is "blocking" - Database Workbench will not be available until the timeout has expired.
Restarting a database
Restarting a database is pretty easy - just select the tree node or the menu item and use it.
